“This project, named after my late father RSM Bukari Kanjaga Awaambe forms part of my little contribution towards the development of sports in Ghana,” he said.

““These core 25 players will form the nucleus of the Awaambe Sports Academy, they will then embark on a series of friendly matches across the country to select and purchase players to form the standing Academy team which will be based in the Bulsa North District capital of Sandema.”

The Sandema mini-stadium will be the home of Awaambe Academy which is registered in the colours of the Bulsa traditional area; red, white and black.

Its logo is the warrior symbol of the Viking to symbolize the defeat of the forefathers of the area of the Samori and Babatu, which victory is celebrated every December with the Feok Festival War dance.
